16w -- At a work event
Anyway, as you can see, I've pretty much got a pregnant belly now. Exciting! Also very exciting is the fact that I am nearly certain I've been feeling movement. Well, actually, it's safe to say that I've definitely been feeling movement. It started out as a very rare flutter or two toward the end of week 14, and within the past few days, it's definitely increased! It's not totally regular yet, but I feel it multiple times a day now, and it is so cool.
It definitely makes all of this so much more real to feel this little person moving around in there. I am beyond excited for Brett to get to feel it, too. I'm hoping that will happen in a few more weeks, although I know it could take a bit longer. Still, it's very fun, and it definitely reminds me to pray for the baby more -- I try to say a prayer every time he or she moves.
I have my next doctor's appointment on Tuesday, after which I'll schedule the "big" ultrasound. Although we aren't finding out the gender, I'm still very excited to see this little person again!
I'm feeling better as this week has gone on (knock on wood) so that is great. I really hope it continues. I'm so tired of feeling sick all the time! I'll be interested to see on Tuesday whether I've gained any weight back since my last appointment. I hope I have, at least a little.
I should go find something to eat now...It's lunch time, and I'm actually hungry for once. YAY! I have to jump on that while it lasts!
